Custom Home Portraits | Building Portraits

Make the place you love iconic.

If you want a special way to honor a family home, the house or building you live in, your business, your headquarters, then you've come to the right place.

Home and building portraits also make great gifts for friends and loved ones moving into or out of a family home.

Custom building drawings in pen and ink are a great way to convey a classic, timeless look for a business headquarters, university, brewery, restaurant, and more.

Let's work together.

Have an idea for a custom illustrated map, home or building drawing, logo or label? Have a project in mind that you want to see us bring to life in ink? We have experience working with a variety of clients on range of custom commissions.

I'm Phil Thompson.

Working mainly in pen and ink, I create artwork dedicated to architecture, history, and the city, with a special love for Chicago. I'm fascinated by the ways that history carves its marks. I see the great architecture of the world as the artifacts of one generation passed to the next. I make work that features classic home styles, icons of the city, with my drawings and illustrated maps.
